Public Policy


Condo Connection is a volunteer effort that helps fill an incredible void for common interest communities and their homeowners.  WE DO ASK for your general support every few months because providing this free resource is not a free endeavor.

We believe in transparency which is why we disclose our fiscal support.  In total, Condo Connection has received about $1,800 of support throughout 2022.  If that doesn’t sound like much, that’s because it isn’t.  Thousands of people visit Condo Connection every month seeking insights and answers.  Requests come in every week to provide more free resources, but very few people are willing to spend even $10.  

YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS.  Please consider supporting us if you and/or your community have benefited from our free resources.  Your contributions enable expansion of Condo Connection's ad-free newsletter and website.  You can donate, purchase a digital download, annual subscription or a festive digital gift card for you and your friends, neighbors, colleagues and community.  You can also share this newsletter and web links and encourage folks you know to join our free listserv.

THANK YOU to all our supporters past, present and future!
